Combustible cases were developed for the recoilless automatic cannon RMK 30 which is also presented. The cases (caliber 30 mm) are made of plastic-bonded explosives. Inductive ignition allows a very high rate of firing. Another advantage is the fully telescoped projectile. The recoil is compensated by the rear out stream of firing gases through a gas jet nozzle. The max. pressure is 400 MPa and the muzzle velocity is >1000 m/s. The hit pattern shows very low deviation. Applications of the cannon are light carriers and helicopters.
